How do you grade your books?
We grade our books conservatively and use the following scale: Paperback Book Grading Guide ******* Fine (FN) Books graded FN are unused and like new. Pure white pages are not required as a slight darkening of the paper due to age is usually inevitable. ******* About Fine (AF) Books grade AF are also unread but have some minor imperfections such as slight edge wear, a small chip at the top or base of spine, light rubbing on the cover or some other minor flaw. ******* Very Good to Fine (VGF) Books graded VGF will show minor signs of use. This is the highest grade given to a book that has been read. May have a slight spine crease. ******* Very Good Plus (VG+) Books graded VG+ show more obvious signs of use and will have no spine rolling, no major creasing, page browning or other serious problems. ******* Very Good (VG) Books that fall into the VG range will exhibit general but not heavy wear. Flaws common to this grade are minor cover creasing, light spine roll, minimal moisture stains, spine fading and peeling cover lamination. The majority of vintage paperbacks will be found in this condition. ******* Good (GD) Books in GD condition show heavy signs of use but are still complete and intact including both covers, spine and pages. Also, any book that would normally fall into a higher grade but has some major flaw such as a clipped corner, or major cover crease should generally be downgraded to GD. ******* Good Minus (GD-) Any books that are in truly rough shape such as torn, taped, heavily warped, multiple major creases, receive this lowest grade. These may still be regarded as good reader copies.
